Last week the girls had “looking day” at their school to check out their classroom, the school, and meet the teachers. After spending the morning on campus Malcolm and I took the girls to get new shoes for school. They each got two new pairs: a white pair of Keds that are comfy, but still look cute with their dresses (Alexandra wore these last year and they held up well and you can even throw them in the wash!), and a pair of sneakers. Alexandra went for the bright purple, orange, and pink kicks right away. Madeleine on the other hand made a beeline for some Disney Princess tennis shoes that I quickly vetoed by saying they didn’t have her size- sorry, Madeleine! I prefer to stay away from characters on the kids clothing so I was hoping she would pick more of a “running” shoe like her big sis. Well, Madeleine is stubborn and I guess you could say we compromised on a Hello Kitty pair of Keds (the ones shown are similar in style).
Both girls were so excited about their new tennis shoes that they wanted to wear them out of the store. But I guess I didn’t realize how excited they were about their new shoes… The next morning was Alexandra’s first day of school and when I went to wake the girls up I realized that they both had put their new sneakers on in the middle of the night and slept in them! Alexandra had even dressed herself in “school clothes” for the night. I just happened to have my camera with me to snap a photo of baby Mac on his first birthday.
So here’s my cutie pies sporting their new kicks overnight!
